Apple Developers Sense of Humor.

Humor is about networking. Since I’ve got MacBook every time I’m very surprised, how easy to get working network sharing between Mac-Windows, Windows-Windows scenario asks for more effort.

Well, do you know how Mac OS is showing Windows computer as neighbor, look

Network Sharing

It’s kinda of legacy CRT monitor with some error displayed.

Mac OS computer in the network shares face, it looks completely different.

Diagrams in Mac OS, OmniGraffle !

How many times I had in mind these thoughts ? Not easy to remember. Today about diagrams in MacOS

Some time ago one person said (c), translation,

Uncounted reason to switch…

Well, it is iLife08. There are few programs go with it. Some of them are really for specific cases.

For example iMovie is extremely handy, when you need to edit and finalize filmed episodes by private-camera. GarageBand to create music in the interactive way.

But today’s topic is not about these nice programs, today about iPhoto 08. Cheap ‘point and shoot’, not cheap ‘point and shoot’, professional cameras, almost everyone has camera and takes photos (isn’t it ? ).

So sooner or later there is requirement to manage photos, iPhoto is one of the easiest way to get things done (that I’ve seen).
